Welsh Lib Dems Welcome Judicial Review into Aberpergwm Coal Mine Expansion

Responding to the news that a judge approved a judicial review request by the Coal Action Network for the Aberpergwm coal mine expansion, Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds MS said:


"Labour ministers must now make it crystal clear whether or not it would stop the expansion of Aberpergwm should they find Welsh Government is responsible.

“Labour have dithered on the expansion of Aberpergwm and they must come clean.

“The Welsh Liberal Democrats urge the Welsh Labour Government, for the sake of our planet and future generations, to say no to more coal.

“The expansion of this mine must be stopped. While some will point to the jobs it creates, communities near Aberpergwm should instead be given a leading role in the development of the green hydrogen strategy being developed in South Wales, ensuring a just transition and jobs for the communities that will last long into the future rather than a decade at most.”
